Another Beheading Video from the Religion of Peace: Turkish Truck Driver Murderd

iraqtruckid.jpgThe videotaped beheading murder of Turkish truck driver Ramadan Elbu can be dowloaded at the Terrorist Media website. Graphic images from the video are posted below. The image to the right is also from the beheading murder video.

This video is the second to be posted to the Ansar al-Sunnah website, but in which at least one of the murderers identified themselves as a member of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi's Tawhid and Jihad terrorist organization [earlier post here]. More to come as time permits. NY Post:

An Iraqi militant group has beheaded a Turkish driver it was holding hostage, according to a video posted on the group's Web site yesterday.

The Army of Ansar al-Sunna said in a statement that it had killed the driver because he worked with the U.S.-led forces in Iraq.

"We warn all those who cooperate with the occupying crusaders to repent and return to the faith or else blame only themselves for their fate, which is death," one of four masked gunmen said, before decapitating the hostage with a knife. The video showed the gunmen standing in front of a black banner bearing the name of Ansar al-Sunna.

They were surrounding the hostage, who was seated on the floor in an open courtyard. He gave a brief statement in Turkish and then was shown blindfolded.

"I want my voice to be heard by all my driver friends and by Turkey. No one should bring goods into Iraq, they shouldn't come to Iraq. That's all I have to say," said the gray-haired hostage, holding up his identity cards.

The video appeared on the Web site of the Ansar al-Sunnah Army, an Iraqi militant group. A statement read out said the kidnappers belonged to the Tawhid and Jihad group's "Qaqa Brigade," a reference to a commander who served Islam's Prophet Muhammad.
